A Time to Love is the first book in the Quilts of Lancaster County series by Barbara Cameron.
Here is a brief synopsis from Abdingdon Press:
She ran from him once… now she’s back.
Can they bridge the gap?
War correspondent Jennie King thinks she’s just a temporary guest in her grandmother’s Amish community while she recuperates from the devastating injuries sustained in a car bomb attack that changed her world. But when she meets Matthew Bontrager, the man she had a crush on as a teenager, she wonders if God has a new plan for her. Jennie has emotional and physical scars and though she feels she has come home to this man and this place, she’s not sure she can bridge the difference between their worlds.
I have no idea how realistic this series actually is, but I have to admit, I found all three stories totally believable!
Jenny King was not allowed to grow up in the Amish community her dad grew up in, and returns only for occasional visits to her grandmother, yet she chooses to return… and stay.
Jenny captured my heart almost immediately with her determination to overcome the obstacles she is faced with while recovering from a car bomb attack.
Barbara Cameron does a great job of bringing together different characters who compliment each other so well, and without even realizing it, begin to build a life together.
I like how these people seem so real… the problems, the laughter, the misunderstandings, as well as the loyalty and the love.
Don’t miss out on this series!
